Curl Soap Response Parsing Issue


Go to solution Solved by AeroProDrive,

Hello guys,

What I do is consuming SOAP Web Service that returns XML data as follows:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<string xmlns="http://tempuri.org/">false</string>

Unfortunately the curl returns something that I can't parse to XML and get the value "false"

My PHP code is the following:

$soap_do = curl_init();
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_URL,            $url );
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true );
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_POST,           true );
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS,     $soap_request);
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER,     $header);

    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYHOST, false);
    curl_setopt($soap_do, CURLOPT_SSL_VERIFYPEER, false);
    $result = curl_exec($soap_do);
    $xml = simplexml_load_string($result);
    return $xml; 

How do I parse this SOAP response? Thank you very much

That result is parsable but I suspect that is not really your question. Are you asking why it is returning false? If so that is a function of the SOAP request not a parsing issue. You need to clarify what you are doing/asking.

I think I found the problem. The @result is of bool type while I was expecting the string from the xml

Therefore I changed return $result; to return $result === true ? "true" : "false";

Now it works like a charm

Thank you so much
